      Classic Egyptian Mythology. Weighing of the heart with the feather of truth. If your heart is lighter than the feather, you go on to the afterlife. If it was heavier than the feather, then it was eaten by the demon god and you were lost forever.

      The weighing to my recollection was performed by Osiris, not Anubis as this image depicts, and a quick search reveals the creature that would devour the heart of the unworthy was called Ammit. I've always found the myths of various cultures interesting. Original pin - "Classic Egyptian Mythology. Weighing of the heart with the feather of truth.
